After a broad review of the scientific research, a September 2017 scientific statement by the American Heart Association recommended meditation be considered to help prevent and treat heart disease as an adjunct to conventional care.

Unlike a 2013 AHA statement that examined a range of alternative approaches for lowering blood pressure, the current statement, titled ''Meditation and Cardiovascular Risk Reduction,'' exclusively focuses on meditation and the research on all six of the contributing factors to cardiovascular disease, not just blood pressure.

''It's the first time in the modern history of health care that an established medical body has recommended meditation in the treatment and prevention of heart disease,'' said Robert Schneider, MD, FACC, dean of Maharishi University of Management's College of Integrative Medicine in the USA.

The statement reviewed five different approaches to meditation . . . . Dr. Schneider said that, compared to other approaches, the Transcendental Meditation research was the most diverse and deepest, including, for example, studies on improved atherosclerosis, decreased insulin resistance, and reductions in the rate of heart attack, stroke, and death.
